? >> sreenivasan: that's correct buckets for both the romney and obama campaigns the goal is to target voters sufficiently so they divide us into groups called buckets. the mobilization bucket for strong supporters of the candidate. the opposition bucket for those voting for the other guy. no need to spend resources on them. and the persuasion bucket for those valuable undecideds. and the campaigns create buckets within buckets. the more data they have, the more they can refine them. details, notes, that person tells me what their most important issue is, do i put that down? >> i would put that in the notes because we know next time when we're building an audience that, you know, joe schmo was a small business owner. you want to make sure he's a part of that audience. >> sreenivasan: the campaign collects even more data through a new organizing tool called dashboard which allows them to pinpoint not just potential voters but potential volunteers. the people in the mobilization bucket. >> this is our on-line field office and so dashboard is definitely both a social tool but also a reporting to

original question. of course it's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just

carolina really is going to go romney. i don't think it will be affected but the only real state is virginia. that one will be affected by the lack of presidential visits during this three-day or four- day period. >> with both candidates having to throw out the fourth quarter game book and faulkous the storm, such a tight race, can they afford to do that? >> they have to make adaptations. the president will try to look presidential, act presidential, show that he cares. the romney campaign has said they will send their volunteers out to help with relief efforts. they've suspended fundraising e- mails so everybody wants to get in the spirit of helping every american during this mini crisis. >> you hate to politicize something like this but does any candidate have the up are hand in this type after situation? >> i really don't think so. the only thing i read that kind of means something, if this had been closer to election day, al gore supposedly would have won florida if the weather was better. that is democrats seem to not turn out in as great numbers as republicans on election d

look at virginia, 7:00 p.m., and florida. if you believe mitt romney is narrowly ahead in both of those states, how quickly do we call them? does he win virginia by two or three points, florida by two or three points? if that's the case, it's likely we're close to calling those states by 9:00. now, look at ohio. a poll closing at 7:30. if the president has a three, four, five-point lead like these polls show, that's a state we'll be calling a lot earlier. but then i say keep an eye on pennsylvania. if we haven't called it by 9:00, if we're still in a too close to call mode, lester, that tells you maybe romney's having a pretty good night. >> and as we watch these swing states come together here, each candidate really has a legitimate path to victory, correct? >> they do. and i wanted the show you sort of what i would call the easiest paths, if you will, for the two of them. for the president, it's pretty simple. if you look at his campaign schedule, it shows you they believe it's simple. ohio three times. and he goes to wisconsin twice. if he just wins those two states, look at his numb
, both mitt romney and president obama are canceling appearances and otherwise trying to steer clear of the storm's path. a magnitude 7.7 earthquake rattled the western coast of canada early this morning. there are no reports of casualties or major damage. a tsunami warning that was in effect for hawaii has now been downgraded ending the threat of serious damage. in the world series last night the cold weather in detroit had little effect on the red hot san francisco giants. as they shut out the tigers 2-0. the giants now have a commanding three games to none lead and can take the best of seven series with a win tonight. today is mother-in-law day and the new study finds that 50% of americans who have mothers-in-law report that they have a good or great relationship with her. how about the 50%? now for the rest of the country's forecast. it will be cooler across the plains and down into texas. some heavy unnamed storms are likely out west. the week ahead looks mostly dryer once sandy has come and gone. next, confronting our superstitions. and later, actor christopher walken. >> my so
that mitt romney can work with both parties. he's not just going to pander to republicans. he will get something done because he know us how to work with democrats having been a republican governor of the state of massachusetts. this country's electoral makeup is not likely to be one party rule after november 6. we need somebody who can work across the aisle. do we have any reason to believe barack obama will work better across the aisle when he doesn't face reelection? >> no, he has been a disaster in the first term. mitt romney has a record of working across the aisle because he was forced to in order to get anything done in the deeply blue state of massachusetts. an was very successful in doing it. mitt romney is a bottom line guy. if you you have a problem, solve it. he will figure out ways to be conciliatory without compromising principle. he has don't before an do it again. these newspapers understand what the problem is. mitt romney will rule out of reality not ideology. megyn: does barack obama have any history of working across the aisle? he got hit by a lot of folks after he

they have a 50.1% chance of winning. and you talk to the romney people, it's the same thing. both sides understand, it is close, and it could go either way. and anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a toss-up right now is such an ideologue, they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops and microphones for the next ten days because they're jokes. >> well, you know, i think mark shares part of what i feel and what i have found from talking to people over this past weekend. democrats especially is that there is a level of confidence, but it's laced with a level of anxiety that reduces the confidence that this is still 50/50. and you're absolutely right. anybody who says, you know, this thing is in the tank for one candidate or another, huh-uh. it's not there. i think you found the same thing. >> democrats who think they're going to win believe as they have all along romney is unelectable, he's just not an acceptable choice and will win because we've done enough to disqualify him. i spent friday night and friday day with romney. he's performing well in those bat

debate, independent voters have continued to move to governor romney, and independent voters are, of course, the deciders. i believe that the president has to do a little better both in the swing states and nationally. as an incumbent, if you don't support him now or you're undecide, you're not likely to get those voters on election day. >> that's wrong. i mean, nate silver who modeled all of this, and who i think has done a pretty good job of this, estimates of the undecided voters in the swing states right now, slightly over 50% are probably likely in the end those to vote for the president. if you look at virginia, bob, this new poll the "washington post" has in virginia, the gender gap has opened up again. the problem we have is there are so many polls. we are living in a poll-littered universe that we tend to lose sight of the fundamentals. the fundamentals are the president has a structural advantage? the battleground states. needs to carry far fewer of them as governor romney, has many more route to 270. and secondly, he does have a superior organization on the ground that
